Finding Balanchine's Lost Ballets

University Press of Florida

This chapter covers the second part of Funeral March, the Lyrical section. For this part of the ballet, we have only partial information, but it creates an outline as to how the dance might have looked. Using the dance vocabulary from other dances that George Balanchine created during this era, the process of filling in the holes in a lost dance to create a stage-worthy dance is explained. Choreographic ideas from the following Balanchine ballets are discussed: Apollo, La Nuit, Étude, Enigma, Valse Triste, and Waltz and Adagio.

Keywords:   Funeral March, George Balanchine, La Nuit, Valse Triste
